I want to put a round peg in a square hole.
Now do I just close my eyes and give it a bloody good whack with a sledge hammer or make the peg square or make the hole round?
Answers awaitd with great anticipation. Epecally YB's
I was just thinking a square peg in a round hole would fit better than the other way around, but then I realized that my thinking is flawed. Would only work it the diameter of the circle is the same as the width of the square and if that's so it really wouldn't matter. Would be the same either way. Now see what you did....I have way over thought it!
get a bigger hammer!
Is it a tool peculiar to America or just to YB
so I forgot the comma.. sue me
sue me or silly me?

I'd try making the peg square. It will be easier to manage than altering the hole, and you could actually use the sledge hammer to pound it into shape.
And less risk of skinning off the square edges!
Don't forget PLENTY of wood filler!!!!
Well, come to think of it, once the big round peg is set, then you can pound 4 smaller pegs into the corners for an even better fit ...
cut the peg short enough so it will fit in the hole corner to corner, repeat, profit!
Another good one! ;)
By the way, what project are you doing this for? Just curious (I live with too many cats :) ).
We all use phrases every day in our conversation. One of which is 'it's like trying to put a square peg in a round hole'
So I thought it might be entertaining to read some of the solutions. It may surprise you, but maybe not. Most of the male fraternity wanted to use brute force whereas the female used logic to work out how.
Who was it that said the ladies do not understand logic?
